Notes: This paper argues that, since war is inherently barbaric, our intuitions and arguments that draw a line of excessive barbarity are uncertain guides: thus, condemnation of barbarity is not as easy as it may appear. This insistence on the inherent difficulty of judgements on conduct in war, and my account of our response to cultural diversity in standards of barbarity, are both significant and novel contributions to contemporary debates over Ius In Bello issues.
